Breaking News: New Book Coming from JK Rowling!

I'm definitely NOT kidding you.  Not only is JK Rowling's new book far away from the HARRY POTTER world that made her famous, it's also a book for adults.

While the AP article states that it may be hard for Rowling to find as big an audience due to the fact that her previous books were for children, they're not taking into the account that most of her audience has grown up alongside Harry and are now adults, which means they, adult novels.

In the article, she states,

"Although I've enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series, which has been published so brilliantly by Bloomsbury and my other publishers around the world," Rowling said in a statement released by Little, Brown. "The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry's success has brought me, and with that new territory it seemed a logical progression to have a new publisher. I am delighted to have a second publishing home in Little, Brown, and a publishing team that will be a great partner in this new phase of my writing life.

What are your thoughts, bookworms?  Will you read this?


  1. OMG that is AWESOME!!! Can't wait to check that one out!!

    Tag your it!!

  2. This is so awesome to hear! I agree of course she will have lots of readers for her adult novel. How many adults do you know that have read either the books or seen the movie? A lot! I don't get people that don't understand that just because the genre is adult, YA, IR doesn't mean that only that age group can read that genre, so many readers read everything. If it is a good book any age group will read it.

  3. Ha, I agree with Kristina. I was like, because they read adult?! Um, I grew up reading those and I'm an adult and I still read mostly YA. :)

  4. She is such an amazing storyteller, that I trust anything she writes will be full of suspense, humor and of course great characters. I will undoubtedly be reading her next book, adult or not!
